Every day you get 86,400 seconds as a gift of life. Whatever you don't use on that day is lost forever.
Some people are not better at saving money than saving time.
Here are 7 ways to save your time:
1. Good planning.
Try to do strategic planning.
Most people just take one day at a time and then they wonder where the time went. Living reactively may take less brainpower but it also puts the world mostly in control. Whether you are in charge of a growing company or just your own future, you owe it to those affected to put some structure to your destiny.
2. Monitoring your time.
If you measure the time you spend you can identify areas where you can adjust and improve. Try measuring your time everyday.
You'll be surprised where you find pockets of poorly used time that you can reapportion.
3. Prioritize your day.
So often people get lost working on projects with little importance or impact. Take a few minutes each morning to confirm with yourself that the projects you took on will actually have positive impact on your life and the lives of others.
Then you can rank them so the best projects get your valuable time.
4. Make daily list to-do.
Without a list, it's easy to get pulled different directions throughout the day leaving you unfocused and unproductive.
A simple list lets you concentrate and schedule your time effectively.
5. Well sleeping at night.
Lack of rest equals lack of focus. If you do not sleep well, you won`t be better equipped to make the most of your awake time.
Then you'll get more done more effectively which will relax you at the end of the day so you can sleep better. Keep working the cycle.
6. Choose your companions carefully.
Everyone has at least one time-sucker in his life. These people are stealing your seconds and minutes because you let them do it. Whether they are friends or family members, you must take control. Limit their availability or cut them out completely.
You can do more for them by ceasing to enable their behavior.
7. Give yourself 30 dedicated minutes each day.
Your day belongs to you. You may choose to give it to family, work, friends, or whatever you want but ultimately it is your time and you can choose how to use it.
Instead of battling it, show time you are in control. Take 30 minutes each day to use on yourself in the best way possible so you can do your best. Give yourself the present of only 1800 seconds.
